  1. maybe milan management now understand why we are that unhappy with last summer mercato. Theo will also play max one more year at Milan, so lets win scudetto this year, next year it will be much more difficult.

    1. you do realize that theo just renewed his contract february 11th untill july 2026 ? still thnk he will leave next year ?

    2. Did you just wake up from a long sleep? Theo already renewed the contract until 2026.

      And Leao still have 2 more year of contract until 2024. He pretty much gonna renew this year.

  2. As if Barca with 1B€ debt has the money to get Christensen, Kessie, Haaland, Leao etc. who all are linked to them. They couldn’t even keep Messi last year.

    1. Yeah i agree, they propably do monitor him though but i highly doubt that milan would sell him for anything less than 100 mil currently so it seems like specualtion at best

  3. There u go,every day that pass there will be more parasite teams knocking on the door as always and ur players will suddenly start changing their thoughts about renawal,just like kessi did,you are to lazy to finish renawals on time

    1. He has 2 more years contract. When is the time? When he signs a new 5 year contract they should renew next year? Genius, you should work in management.

      1. i see genius in comments ,silly just like our renawal moves, relying on 2 years of contracts is excactly what costed us losing money on transfers,2 years left should be the last chance to sell someone not to keep asking him to renew , kessie did excactly that to us,just like hakan, ‘i will renew np’ ,delaying it to the last year of contract when u are in checkmate position,u cant renew with them and u cant sell them in 1 year left contract,thats excactly what they and their managers want

      2. i will tell u one thing kiddo crosonero since i see u like to insult people on internet,if they offered renawal to kessie a year earlier he would accept even 5 million per year and now we would not even talk about him,when player have extraordinary season like kessie had last year ,or leao has now,they will ask double of what u offering to them because you need them ,they dont need you anymore,thats above what u can understand probably but try

  4. Dude relax, leao still have 2 years contract and Will renew with Bennacer.Dont judge so fast that AC Milan management worst due to lord Hakan and dollarumma case. They do save money more than they can get by selling lord Hakan or dollarumma,example maignan cost 15m euro + salary 3m euro nett + tax 1,5 m euro ,in 5 years only 22,5m euro + transfer fee 15m euro total 37,5m euro ,while dollarumma asking 10m euro nett+ tax 10m euro in 5 years cost 100m euro.Club save 62,5m euro in 5 years contract,AC Milan cannot sell dollarumma 62,5m euro because no club want to pay kid like that more than 30m euro and don’t forget AC Milan get dollarumma free too from academy
